LORAIN: Residents and businesses in Lorain County will soon be receiving their NEW CenturyTel White and Yellow Pages directory as it is delivered throughout Lorain County during the next few weeks. This year you’ll notice something new though, a smaller sized companion directory will accompany your regular sized directory.
“This convenient, portable sized directory will satisfy the needs of our customers who are always on the go or for households that may need additional directories,” said Joanette Romero, Public Relations Manager of CenturyTel’s Great Lakes Market.
CenturyTel delivers on its commitment to the community to provide an accurate, comprehensive directory every year. Local residents refer to the directory an average of nine times each month for information about area businesses. More than 90 percent of local residents use the directory all year as their primary source of business contact information. Residents report a 95 percent satisfaction rate with the Yellow Pages from CenturyTel.
Recycle your old phone books in our 14th Annual Phone Book Recycling Campaign with CenturyTel, Allied Waste Services, Lorain County Solid Waste Management District, and the Burger King Restaurants from Friday, October 26th through Monday, November 12, 2007.

Over 326,000 phone books have been recycled by Lorain County residents and businesses since the program began in 1993. These phone books were kept out of landfills. The phone books today are sent to a news print mill and recycled into newspaper.
“The Calling All Phone Books recycling program has been such a success that CenturyTel is pleased to be involved once again with the program,” said Joanette Romero.
“We are extremely fortunate to be teamed up with the fine companies of Allied Waste Services, Lorain County Solid Waste Management District, and Burger King Restaurants to promote the directory recycling program. Their commitment to this excellent program emphasizes the positive impact it has on our community.”
During the next few weeks, CenturyTel customers will be receiving the 2007-2008 Lorain County Directories at their residences and businesses. Additional copies can be picked up at CenturyTel, located at 203 West 9th Street in Lorain. There is no charge for extra copies.
